Round Barrow(s)


This is a rather curious site. Its name means 'hollow of the stone'. It looks like a round barrow, but on its top is a 5'4" high stone. It is said that the stone was removed by an Edward Roberts in the 1860s - he rather fancied it as a gatepost. However he had enormous trouble trying to stand the stone up in its new location, and suffered the usual string of troubles associated with Meddling With Stones. He had no peace of mind until he replaced it where it belonged.
